Government Partner

NID Housing has been a HUD-certified National Intermediary of Housing Counseling services since the dawn of the federal program in the 1990s. Our organization’s original branch-office format certified by HUD has consistently proven itself to be the most effective and self-sustaining model in an industry that often lives and dies by the grant dollar.

Over the course of our relationship with HUD, NID Housing has offered in-person, one-on-one counseling and group education to over two million homebuyers, homeowners, and renters. The majority of these clients achieved and sustained affordable and fair homeownership and rental housing.

A glimpse at our statistics reveals that we are proud of our leadership in HUD’s Housing Counseling Program and as a major contributor to reforming existing programs and designing new ways to serve the American people.

  • 84% Minority & Low-to-Minimum Wage Earners;
  • 62% Female Headed-Households;
  • 16% Clients whose first language is not English;
